all know, these are high days for liberal america and we are watching president obama very closely to see if he will be a leader for all americans or just left wing folks? so far the evidence is that mr. obama is moving further to the left. there is no question that some kind of gun control will be embraced by the obama administration. looks like they will will try to ban certain kind of assault weapons. they will want the feds to register firearms much like you have to register your cower car. talking points believes the legislation will have a tough time getting through the house. there is danger for the republicans because most americans do want some reasonable restrictions on powerful weapons. in the same vein immigration reform will most likely happen. must get more hispanic americans to support it therefore we can expect a quasiamnesty for law abiding illegal aliens already in the country. they have to jump through a few hoops it will take some time but they should be able to stay in this country. gay marriage front the supreme court hearing two cases. what's likely to happen
signature. this is jack lew. all signs point to president obama say i knowing him to replace tim geithner. and if he is nominated and confirmed, that will mean that our money might end up looking like this. because that is jack lew's signature on it. if he doesn't choose to tune up the legibility of the loop de loops like tim geithner did, our money mite look like this. what "new york" magazine described as a slinky that has lost its spring, republicans in washington are hinting that we won't actually have to worry about seeing jack lew's wacky signature on our money. they're saying he doesn't have to worry about changing the signature to it looks good on the money because he, jack lew, will never be the guy who has to actually sign the money. he will never be treasury secretary. today to be, quote, scoffing at the notion of jack lew as treasury secretary. mitch mcconnell is said to have been irked by mr. lew in the past. republican senator from nebraska, mike johanns called lew a controversial pick. the reasonable he is controversial is, quote, i think there are nick policie

of the nra as he prepares to hand president obama a list of recommendations on gun reform. yesterday, during a meeting, biden said that the president was ready to get gun reform done with or without the help of congress. >> we're here today to deal with a problem that requires immediate action, urgent action and the president and i are determined to take action. i want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion, unless we can do everything we're going to do nothing. the president is going to about, executive action that can be taken. we haven't decided what that is yet. i don't think anything has touched the american people so proprofoundly than those young people being riddled with bullets. every once in a while, someone awakens the conscience of the country. that tragic event did in a way like i have never seen in my career. >>> former president clinton is also speaking out on the issue. the availability of high-capacity of magazines is nuts. gun retailers including walmart will be adding their input. >>> during the state of tate address, new york governor cuomo
